Excess fat under your chin can make you appear overweight and older than you really are. It can be frustrating when a double chin persists despite your commitment to a healthy lifestyle or recent weight loss.
Fortunately, it is possible to achieve the sculpted jawline you desire without surgery with Belkyra®, a Health Canada and FDA-approved injection treatment designed to eliminate excess fat cells for good.
To discuss Belkyra® treatment with our experienced dermatologist, Dr. Gabriele Weichert or board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Philip Barnsley, please contact Synergy Medical Aesthetics today online or at 250-591-1566 to schedule a personal consultation and assessment. We welcome patients from Lantzville and neighboring Central Vancouver Island communities.
What is Belkyra®?
Belkyra® is an injectable formula used to break down and destroy the excess submental fat that causes a double chin. Belkyra®’s Health Canada-approved formula consists of a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in your body. Over a series of treatment sessions, Belkyra® reduces the fat layer in the chin to redefine your jawline and slim your chin.
Benefits of Belkyra®
Whether you have just a little fat under your chin or a full double chin, Belkyra® is an effective way to improve the contours of your jawline without facelift or necklift surgery. In addition to redefining your jawline, Belkyra® treatment offers a number of benefits, such as:
- Quick treatment time
- Long-lasting results
- No scalpels, sutures or stitches
- Minimal downtime
- Proven safe and effective
- Health Canada-approved
Patients may experience some immediate post-injection swelling and discomfort, but these effects quickly subside. You can resume your normal activities immediately after receiving your injections.
How Long Do Belkyra® Results Last?
Once Belkyra® has destroyed the targeted fat cells, they can no longer store or accumulate fat. The cells are permanently eliminated. However, remaining cells can still grow with weight gain, so maintaining a stable weight after your Belkyra® treatment helps to ensure long-lasting results.
Am I a Good Candidate for Belkyra® Treatment?
Almost everyone is a good candidate to receive Belkyra®’s safe, effective injection treatment. Generally speaking, Belkyra® may be an ideal solution for addressing your condition if:
- You are unhappy with the appearance of a double chin
- Fullness under your chin persists despite good nutrition and exercise
- You’d prefer a non-surgical treatment instead of a surgical procedure to eliminate your double chin
The best way to determine if Belkyra® is right for your situation is to meet personally with Dr. Weichert or Dr. Barnsley. During your comprehensive consultation and assessment, our doctor will evaluate your condition, answer your questions and help you determine which treatment options best meets your needs and goals. CoolSculpting may be another treatment to consider.
How Much Does Belkyra® Cost?
The cost of Belkyra® treatment can vary, depending on the severity of your double chin. Typically, two to four treatments are necessary to achieve optimal results, and cost $1,200 per treatment.
